Keep your eyes peeled for this aircraft's final flight

Jennifer Eder Reporter from Marlborough Express

The Royal New Zealand Air Force's P-3K2 Orion will arrive at Base Woodbourne today at the end of its last flight, after 55 years' service. NZ4203 is the first of the RNZAF's Orion maritime patrol aircraft fleet to be retired. The aircraft is scheduled to leave Base Auckland Whenuapai at 10.40am on Friday, before flying at low altitude over Base Ohakea, and down to Wigram's Air Force Museum, before landing in Marlborough.
